In traditional publishing, an artist creates a work then passes it on to the publisher. The publisher edits it then gives it to a designer who, in turn, structures it visually, and finally sends it to the printer, who makes it an object.
For the second edition of Pages & Spreads, in collaboration with Jai-Alai magazine and Coloform, we will go through this entire process on site. In just 4 hours we will create, edit, design, and print a unique zine to be distributed freely… But there’s a catch: this zine will be written by you.
Ever played the “Telephone" game, where you send a message around a circle of people & see how it turns out? For this pop-up reading room we’ll be playing the literary version. Everyone will have the chance to translate, recast or respond to an original poem from Jai-Alai magazine, until enough “translations” are made for the zine.
